Your partnership, and friendship, is very much appreciated and we look forward to getting together when you are back in town.

Thank you again

Boris and Ines,

In going back over the meeting, all I can say is WOW.

This success was earned the good old fashion way, hard work, innovation and brilliant minds doing what they do best.

This is so very impressive, you two are a brilliant team and things just keep getting better and better, and the best is still yet to come!!

It is an honor to be your friend and counsel:-)

Hey Boris,

I talked to Chris Taddei this morning and heard you were in the offices Friday afternoon. I was sorry to miss you.

I did have some of the schnapps over the weekend. vWOWSER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That packed some punch - seriously meant for a cold winter night - or something like that.

Thanks again, Keep in touch.


Christopher Taddei  @ 08/02/2016 04:02:43

Hi Boris,

Thanks again for the update last week as well as the wonderful schnapps you brought in. I had some for the super bowl and really enjoyed it ! I love the packaging too !!!!

Michael Qiu  @ 02/02/2016 03:02:56

Agreed with you a hundred percent indeed, Boris.

The fond memory of our very first meeting in St. Paul on a very snowy day so long ago, while I was there for an appointment with someone else at Cortec who had been called away by urgent business, intending to get more information about Cortec on behalf of my friends and former colleagues from Chinese Ministry of Oil, then you courteously invited me in for a chat, which lasted hours instead of minutes that I anticipated, started not only the lasting friendship but also rewarding business associations.

We have not spent much time together over the years, yet I've always been fascinated by the mutual understanding, the warmth and privity that bonded us despite the physical distance. I shall cherish and treasure our friendship, brotherhood as well as comradeship always.

Take care and with warmest regards,

Dear Boris and Ines,

I would like to thank you for making the week in Opatija possible. The walks along the ocean and bright sunshine, the lovely hotel room with an ocean view, delicious meals and a chance to explore, all combined to make my time there truly replenishing.

I also enjoyed spending time with Nina, and learning about her fascinating history. She is a remarkable woman!

I will send you a picture of the Thunderbird parked practically next to the Amphitheater in Pula. The ruins were amazing, and I was thrilled to see them.

Thank you again for a memorable trip. I will never forget your generosity and kindness during this challenging time in my life. I am very grateful.
